I will tell you what, I have reformed my opinions about leggings, and the sophisticated offspring, the jegging.
Originally I wanted nothing to do with either. Understandably.
However, in the last 6 months I have worked with more pregnant mamas than ever before, hence the pure appreciation of the jeggings.
I have long been a fan of skinny jeans, and have put many clients into them quite successfully. There is typically quite a bit of cajoling, strong encouragement, and sometimes even bribing. However, once in, most clients don’t turn back.
Now considering that most pregnant women wear leggings for 9 months, the jegging is a natural alternative. Paired with a loose t-shirt or tank top, a great blazer and cute shoes, you’re set, and cute.
Having said that, most clients don’t even go near them unless they are pregnant. Or under 30. I am okay with that. I feel the same way about leggings. Fabulous if you are pregnant or under 30, otherwise just leave it.
If you are looking to find some, try Aritzia who carries COH and Paige jeggings (although the COH have a short inseam). Also, Zara, love Zara. Tons of options for way less money.
